This green cabbage celery juice is my new go-to green juice. One day while juicing I was low on veggies except for a big head of green cabbage. I’d never juiced cabbage but thought, why not? I was delightfully surprised at the crisp, clean, almost sweet flavor of this juice and the beautiful light green color. And between the health benefits of cabbage and celery, this is one healthy healing juice.

Clean Green Cabbage Celery Juice

While cabbage is synonymous with coleslaw, sauerkraut, and taco filling, it is terrific juiced and available year round. Cabbage is a member of the cruciferous vegetable family like kale, broccoli and cauliflower and you know how good these veggies are for you.

To make 2 18-ounce clean green cabbage juices you will need 3/4 of a large head of green cabbage, a head or two of celery, 1 Granny Smith apple, and a small lemon.

Health Benefits of Green Cabbage Celery Juice

Studies recognize cabbage juice, referred to as vitamin U, for it’s effectiveness in normalizing gastric and intestinal function. It’s healing for peptic ulcers commonly caused by a Helicobacter pylori bacterial infection, a bacteria growing in the digestive system. H. pylori attacks the stomach lining and in some people leads to ulcers and an inflammatory condition called gastritis. As someone who’s had an H-Pylori infection, it’s not something I’d wish on anyone. I experienced crippling stomach aches, bloating, burping, and other unpleasant symptoms.

If you’re experiencing ongoing intestinal problems, please work with your healthcare provider to understand what’s causing the problem and treatments options.

Juicing Tips

It’s best to buy organic for juicing, especially as celery usually shows up on the Dirty Dozen list for high pesticides. Cabbage is way down the list (#35 for 2020) but I still recommend organic if possible. I use Eat Cleaner to safely wash my produce. For juicers, I use both the Slowstar and the Greenstar Elite from Tribest. Both models are slow masticating juicers that get the most out of your produce. Juices made with the Slowstar hold for 24 hours in the refrigerator and up to 72 hours for the Greenstar with minimal loss of nutrition.

For other ways to get cabbage into your diet, try this broccoli cabbage slaw or braised cabbage and leeks.

For Histamine Intolerance

As citrus is high in histamines, you can leave it out. It does have a better flavor with it and lemon lifts the flavor. I am ok with this this juice but do what works best for you.
